Licensing Performance


Licensing Performance

The Licensing Team receive a very high number of applications each year, not just for new licences, but for renewals, variations and transfers of our existing licences.

We also receive complaints about our licensed premises.

In 2015 we moved to a new computer system and so some of our data is only available from 2015 onwards.
